Ariana Grande's '7 Rings' Samples 'My Favorite Things' and Twitter Can't Handle It
Ariana Grande's fans are eating up her sassy new single "7 Rings" and its glamorous new video, but it's the song's sampling of The Sound of Music's "My Favorite Things" that has social media blowing up.
The singer put a lavish spin on the iconic tune, upgrading the original items like "bright copper kettle and warm woolen mittens" to more luxurious splurges such as "bottles of bubbles" and "lashes and diamonds."
After Grande dropped the glitzy pink video at midnight Thurday (Jan. 17), fans sped to Twitter to gush over the popstar's rendition of the Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein II classic.
Check out some of the best responses below:
Ariana grande’s new song “7 Rings” is a bop. Especially that part in the beginning where she sang to the music of “my favorite things” from the Sound of Music. As a chorus student who has watched that movie 5 times for the past 3 years IM SHOOK. pic.twitter.com/TYNPO2blqA— ☾ moonchild ☾ (@daddyyoongles) January 18, 2019
